Presented in partnership with the National Arts Council, #StayHomeStayLit2020 is a digital campaign that aims to draw Singaporeans closer to the local arts scene through conversations led by homegrown authors, artists, musicians and designers on Sing Lit Station’s Instagram page, and at the same, provide ample reading material to keep everyone's spirits up at home.

Additionally, #StayHomeStayLit2020 also hopes to commission artists and writers during this time of Covid-19 to support them and their works, as well as to bring attention to independent bookstores and local publishers to ensure they can stay afloat during this period of crisis.

In all, 33 creatives will present 33 SingLit book recommendations under this digital campaign, where artist-designers will review and create an original response to a SingLit book using their medium of choice – from drawing and graphic design, to singing and even instruments.

In turn, readers are also invited to to join the conversation and send in fan art responses by tagging their #SingLit reviews with #StayHomeStayLit2020. Six lucky winners will each walk away with one of the featured #SingLit titles from independent bookstores and local publishers.

Here are some highlights, where local literature provided a window to reinvent perspectives and revive memories:
